Hillary Clinton Wants a Repeat of Afghanistan-Style Insurgency in Ukraine
Rania Khalek & Eugene Puryear, hosts of The Freedom Side, respond to Hillary Clinton’s suggestion that the U.S. should prepare for a long-term Ukrainian insurgency along the lines of the mujahideen in Afghanistan from the 1980s. They also discuss a 2008 WikiLeaks document that predicted NATO expansion would spark an internal Ukrainian crisis and possible Russian intervention.
